I have a X2N in my RGA and it kicks ass. Though, for the OP I also have a SD Distortion (SH-6) and it's damn sweet too. I'd say the X2N is a better shredder PU because it's EQ is very flat and it has the hottest output of any passive pickup while the SH-6 has a slightly scooped sound which is great if you're into modern tones (like I am).

Basically: X2N for traditional shred - SH-6 for modern chug (Of course slap an EQ pedal in the effect chain and get whatever EQ you want)

Any Semour Duncan named "TB-xxx" means it's F-Spaced.

Get the F-Spacing for the bridge.

F-Spacing just means that the poll pieces on the pick up are spaced ever so slightly farther apart. They do this because with floating bridges (and some hard tails) the string clamping point are farther apart than they would be on a tune-o-matic type hard tail bridge.

So definitely get f-spaced for the bridge. The neck should be fine either way. I have an RGA121 with a special hard tail and it needs f-spaced bridged pickups so you definitely will too.

Though, do keep in mind that the difference is very small and it's not like one won't work - it's just one works that little bit better.

Seymour Duncans will not fit in the body routing without modifying the mounting lugs. You need 'F' spaced pups in both positions, which the Trembucker is anyway.

Yeah, you could go for the TB-6, which Seymour Duncan calls their trembuckers.

You want F-spaced DiMarzio pups. SD have a feature on their site which automatically recommends F-spaced pups on their site (if you specify a locking trem), so try using that.

Re: my new rg 3270 m-tb...pickups?

If you like the evo neck so much why not go for that ?!?!? Output wise it's halfway between the AN and Breed neck.

Re: my new rg 3270 m-tb...pickups?

Thanks for nice comments

I still can't find a solution for neck position. Is there any one who uses dimarzio neck with seymour duncan bridge ?

I think Air norton will not satisfy me as long as I have a jem 7vwh with evo neck. I need something stronger. Should I go with breed neck?
